IN MEMORIAM 




ROY HUDGENS 



We remember Mr. Hudgens as a teacher and friend who endeared himself to 
Gulf Park in a way not soon to be forgotten. 

To express in a few words a resume of the memories each of us holds of Mr. 
Hudgens cannot possibly be done. We can only try to present some of the more 
memorable qualities shared by us all. 

His genuine love for his work, eagerness to help, and patient teaching generated 
to all — students and faculty — the warm and happy feeling of a good life. His ef- 
forts to formulate in our minds a better understanding of creation, the world we 
live in, and ourselves showed his immense interest in his fellow man. His sense 
of humor, delight in everything around him, love for the ridiculous not only kept 
his sense of proportions balanced but helped us keep ours. 

We know not, understand not the reasons for his death. We know and under- 
stand our feelings of grief at having lost a teacher and friend.

DEDICATION 



MISS BONNIE SHARP 




Truly an iron hand in a velvet glove . . . Achieving and maintaining an equal 
halance between the typical college girl and the mature teacher and leader . . . 
Winsome laugh and impish smile sometimes used to cover her troubles . . . 
Unselfishly giving her time to chaperone weekend trips to Huck . . . Equestrienne 
unequaled . . . Loyally wearing her battered old sailor cap . . . The black riding 
habit with the starched white shirt and that "saucy, red bow tie" . . . Sponsor of 
the Senior Class . . . Unaware of her magnetic charm and her idolizing circle of 
admirers. 

Miss Bonnie Sharp, we the Sea Gull Staff of 1956 are honored to dedicate this 
annual to you in appreciation for all you have contributed to the students, faculty. 
and school. To us, you are a truly memorable person, for by quiet example, you 
have shaped our futures more than you realize and captured parts of our hearts 
forever.

The Dwyer Family 



To the Students: 

Within the pages of the Sea Gull can be found the pictorial account 
of each student's life at Gulf Park. By substituting oneself for the 
actual person pictured, by adding details here and subtracting there, 
every girl has a photographic diary of her time spent here. No year- 
book, however, can do more than present the tangible part and suggest 
the intangible part of college life. The changes that take place in the 
individual, through new associations, ideas, and environment, cannot 
be snapped by the camera, yet the importance of these changes cannot 
be minimized. Here with the Sea Gull before her is an opportunity 
for each Gulf Park girl, at any time of her life, to recall not only cam- 
pus life as it was but herself as she was. And if through these recollec- 
tions come more than nostalgic memories, if with them comes a rededi- 
cation to principles found here, then both the Sea Gull staff and Gulf 
Park College will be highly complimented.

Except for sponsoring the annual Spring Fash- 
ion Show, the Secretarial Science Club meets only 
for purely social get-togethers. Agreeing with the 
old adage — all work and no play make Jill a dull 
girl — these future working girls enjoy themselves 
at dinners in the Y-Hut and watermelon feasts at 
the end of the pier. In addition, they are always 
ready, individually or in groups, to volunteer time, 
energy, and skill to all the business problems of 
the other organizations on campus.

Gulf Park's annual Spring Fashion Revue was 
given January, 18, before a packed auditorium 
of students and guests. For weeks before the show, 
volunteer models spent hours acquiring the proper 
walk, stance, and poise of professional models. 
Then to strains of music supplied by a trio from 
the New Orleans Philharmonic, Gulf Park girls 
showed dresses from such stores as Northrop's 
and M. Salloum's of Gulfport. Godchaux's and 
Kreeger's of New Orleans, and Joyce's and Bit- 
tar's of Biloxi. Entertainment for the show was 
supplied by the Dance Department and the Glee 
Club.

Every college campus has something that 
it is proud of, whether it is a good basket- 
ball team, a new stadium, or an immaterial 
something known as Spirit. Gulf Park girls 
are justly proud of their spirit and sports- 
manship and eager to win the Goat which 
symbolizes these qualities. The coveted Mr. 
Goat is awarded for excellence in Sing Song, 
swimming, softball, hockey, volleyball, and 
basketball. The organization that promotes 
good sportsmanship, and sponsors overnight 
trips to Huckleberry Hill, Sing Song, the 
Mardi Gras Ball, skating parties, beach par- 
ties, and square dances at the Veterans Hos- 
pital is the Athletic Association. 

The strains of "We're a grand old gang 
and together we'll hang" could very well be 
the motto of the Athletic Association.

The Winning Juniors 



V O L L E 



B A L 



"J-U-N-I-O-R-S" was the pep song that 
spurred their class on to victory. This was 
the first athletic tournament of the year, 
and by reports from other years we be- 
lieve it was one of the most exciting con- 
tests ever played. Although the Junior 
class was victorious, it could not be said 
that they won without effort. The first 
game of the tournament saw the Seniors, 
captained by Judy Kennedy with team 
members Beth Tedford, Lynn McFarland, 
Sheila Ross, Biddie Hightower, Connie 
Jones, Louise Akard, Belinda McGinley, 
and Stephany Satterfield admitting to 
defeat by the Juniors. Their captain was 
Barbara Biesinger whose team was made 




Missed ! 




Tension Builds Within Us 

up of Judy Montaldo, Terry Grant, Susan Meffert, 
Liz Kennedy, Janet Keehan, Betty Wood, and Carole 
Reech. But in the second game the tide changed to 
the Seniors' side, after an engaging battle with the 
High School, whose captain was Carole Schroeder 
and whose team members were Barbara Webb, 
Marsha Best, Cathie Land, Pat Shea. Barbara Davis, 
Heidi Holt, and Diane Stewart. The third and final 
game of the tournament paved the way to victory for 
the Juniors, who, as they snakedanced through the 
dining hall to reecive "His Majesty the Goat," sang 
"Ho-Rah for the Junior class. Her Team is a Fighting 
Class." 







Senior Sailors 



Let it not be said that sailing 
races cannot be held without a 
sufficient amount of wind. This 
happened the first day of the 
tournament which began as the 
classes marched to the end of the 
pier, singing their pep songs, 
where each had decorated a spot 
with streamers of their class 
colors. As darkness fell on the 
pier it became evident to skip- 
pers Judy Kennedy, Heidi Holt, 
and Liz Kennedy and crewmen 
Liz Klinke, Joan Kintz, Sharon 
Gernsey, Van Kirtley, Penny 
Butler, Nancy Brown, Barbara 
Richards, and Terry Grant, that 
the tournament would be con- 
tinued the following day. The 
second day of the tournament 
provided both wind and thrills 
for the spectators. As the first 
race started the High School 
was ahead, but both of the two 
opposing classes still had good 
changes of winning. After a hard 
afternoon of battle the reward of 
victory "His Majesty, the Goat," 
was presented to the Junior 
Class.

Sailing to Victory 





Probably never in the history of Gulf Park has any 
student body seen classes challenge each other that 
were more equal in skill. Although this tournament far 
surpassed the length of time it was supposed to be 
played in, every student looked forward with much ex- 
pectation to every game. The tournament opened with 
a game between the Juniors, whose captain was Susan 
Meffert, and the High School whose captain was Bar- 
bara Webb. It was an exciting, hard-fought battle, but 
the Juniors were victorious. The second game, which was 
played between the High School and the Seniors, whose 
captain was Lynn McFarland, ended with a tie score. 
So the Seniors and High School were scheduled to play 
again. In this game the spectators thought that there 
was going to be another tie, but during the last quarter 
the High School rallied to beat the Seniors by a small 
margin. In the supposedly last contest of the tournament 
the High School challenged the Juniors again. Never 
have any spectators seen a more exciting game or two 
teams more equal in skill, because this contest ended in 
a tie also. Mother Nature seemed to resent having the

last game of the tournament played by giving us a great 
deal of bad weather, but after a week the High School 
and Juniors resumed play. This very skilled and thrill- 
ing contest finally gave us a winner. After many weeks 
of suspense the Juniors enjoyed their victory with a 
great celebration.

HOLIDAY INN 



Three reasons why HOLIDAY INN is fast becoming headquarters for Gulf 
Park students — and their families, too: 

1 . The SEA RANCH, with Tex, the cowboy, in charge. Twelve horses. Fine 
riding trails through the forest and along the beach. Hayrides and weiner 
roasts. 

2. The PUB, with soda fountain, Juke-Box and dance floor, which caters to 
young people. 

3. The CHART ROOM Restaurant, with its famous murals by Dale Nich- 
ols. Fine food and service.
